  1. Stranraer v Airdrie

    Watched the lowlights again, I really don't think Rohan is the issue at the 2nd and 3rd. Granted, the pitch clearly plays a part but for me, both goals are due to some fairly apathetic and poorly communicated defending by Stewart and Nelly. The 2nd goal, Stewart should have pressed the spare midfielder before Jordan did, leaving Mcgregor and Brownlie 2v1 with the scorer and the lethargic Willis taking the wide man. 3rd goal, I don't think, in that bog of a goalmouth Rohan could get to the cross. Instead I want Willis picking up no 20 and Stewart tucked in behind McGregor and Stewart making the challenge on the cross. We changed formation and the very young players are still not very well drilled. Communications and responsibilities are still lacking - with such a young team you will get that - it will improve with good coaching and some on the park leadership. Talking of on the park leadership, there is one particularly poor player, a seemingly undroppable 24 year old, who does nothing but snipe at the younger players and divert blame on to them.

    Overall he's been much improved mate, agreed, he ain't no Johnny Martin. Not sure I should be bothered right enough, he's not even our player since JB sold the family jewels anyway.

    Every team in the league knows his kicking is poor under pressure and pressure him agressively, so why does that left back always play it back to him? And why doesn't his coaches work with him to clear it quicker? Rovers game and yesterday his only mistakes were when he took a touch on his back passes. Will need to watch the highlights again for the other 2 goals but our defence and defensive midfield are disorganised chaos at times, especially a right back who makes more effort breaking forwards, a snarky left back who can't defend and has an attitude problem, and something missing in centre mid. In saying all that the pitch was a nightmare and for all our defensive faults we looked really sharp going forwards. 3 off the post, game could've been buried by h/t

    Whats wrong with Stewart and Hastie doing it?

    100% mate Personally I think he could bring on our near future partnership of Russell and Thomson. And think of the community work he could do. There would be a lot that BP could still contribute, he still has a bit of life about him. No sure about his contract situation tho

  9. Wee Rovers AGM - Boardroom coup d`etat ?

    I run a kids team who use St Ambrose for training. We get hounded by NLL to pay our lets in ADVANCE and are threatened with their lets. Why do NLL treat Rovers differently from the local - council tax paying - youth teams? Shocking state of affairs

    He has multiple issues in regards to remaining here, nothing sinister but he's in a real head scratcher of a situation. I do know we've tried our best. We as fans need to look at the bigger picture and there'll be enough happening this month to overshadow one player leaving if we can't sort out his issues or not.

    He was McGowan/Wotherspoon's man. With no daytime training he wasn't needed.

    They will be made an offer, up to them if they take it or not. The club and stadium are now on the same side. The club has been saved by people who have the best interests at heart. We will make the club the best it can be. It will be run by people who say "What can I do for you" not "What can you do for me".
